Happy Birthday, Guard

Today marks the 370th birthday of the National Guard. America's oldest fighting force, the Guard traces its origins to the 1636 foundation of the Massachusetts Bay Colony militia. As America finds itself in the early stages of a decades long war with radical Islamism, the National Guard is more important to our nation than ever.

In theory, shouldn't Conservatives be in favor of the various militias that operate in Iraq (if one sees the large geographical ethnic groups almost like States within a Federation)?

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

My guess is the Founders would have said that Islam is not suited for a Republican form of governtment, but for tyranny. This is one aspect of a central issue of our time.

I have not read the Fjordman on this, but he has an essay on my read list entitled "Is Islam Compatible With Democracy?"
